"An Interview with the editor of Mother Jones": alarmed by the rapid spread of pornography today, many feminists are calling for its restriction or censorship.

She is interviewed by Adam Hechschild. "A Flow Chart of Love and Money": a look at a phenomenon of the 1970's computer dating. Interiews with folks who have used such services...a talk by regional managers of "Compatibility", one of the oldest computer dating businesses in the country.
